Y540 12GB vs 8 or 16

2019-08-04, 10:00 AM

Hello. I have ordered but not yet received  y540 17” with the following 

i7-9750H Processor (2.60GHz, 4.50GHz, 6 cores, 12MB 

GeForce GTX1650 4 GB GDDR5 128 bit

1 TB hard drive, 7200 2,5", 7 mm
256GB SSD-drive

and

12 GB (4+8) DDR4 2666MHz SoDIMM

 

Was the 12 GB ram 4+8 a bad choice? How does it work? I have read quite a lot of warnings not to buy 12 GB as it might not work and 4+4 or 8+8 would have been a better choice. 

 

Thanks. 

Tom

Hi Knusperkeks!

 

Welcome to the Community Forums!

 

Apologies for the delayed response.

 

There is no trouble with 12GB (4+8) as long as the speeds of both RAMs are the same. For 16GB (8+8) it is better comparing to the 12GB.

 

Hope this answers your query.

 

Regards,

Jerry_Lenovo
